The Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) gave recognition to local design excellence at the 5th annual Furniture Design Competition that was held at the Johannesburg Homemakers Expo, which took place at the Ticketpro Dome from 22-25 February 2018.
MECAD Systems does it again!
Over the course of three full days of SOLIDWORKS World 2018, more than 5,000 members of the SOLIDWORKS community got to attend more than 200 breakout sessions. Atendees were able to gain insight into specific topics or solutions ranging from design to manufacturing; 3D CAD and simulation; electrical design & schematics; communications; collaboration; and data management.

In general, most SOLIDWORKS users designing large assemblies are not that interested in the weight of Toolbox items. Some designers may estimate an approximate value, while some do not even bother to use Toolbox items at all. Yet, several users – such as designers of smaller assemblies – may have the need to calculate the weight of Toolbox items. More importantly: they also want to communicate this information through a bill of materials (BOM). However, showing material and weight properties of Toolbox items is not possible in SOLIDWORKS by default. By following just a few steps you can have this functionality within minutes.
One of the most useful features in SOLIDWORKS Simulation professional has to be Submodelling. This feature was already introduced in SOLIDWORKS 2013 and is available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation professional and Simulation premium. Submodeling is based on the St. Venant’s principle which states that the stresses reasonably distant from an applied load on a boundary are not significantly altered if this load is changed to a statically equivalent load. This powerful feature is used to isolate and analyze a specific area of a larger structure. Using Submodelling you can focus on a specific sub-area of a model and simulate it in greater detail, this means getting must faster results.
